What a cute cozy! I found the writing to be more crisp and sparkling (and witty!) than the usual treacly stuff you tend to get in these "theme" cozies. Enjoyed the quotations at each chapter head and the fact that it was written in a way that left you looking forward to the next book in the series- not for more mystery but to find out how Maddie gets on with her Vintage Magic business.

Then there are the interesting and fun characters ...more

Very entertaining - can't wait to start the 2nd. Funny, lady snarky, lots of good fashion in it - good recommendation!

A Veiled Deception was really great compared to other fashion fiction books I have read. I plan on reading book #2. I enjoyed the plot and the twist along the way.
